Unfortunately, this year the Annual Show in September will not go ahead due to Covid-19 restrictions but we are excited to share more details about a virtual Sunflower Competition. We’ve seen some amazing sunflowers growing on plots across the allotment sites and we can’t wait to see your entries!
Categories & guidance on how to measure
1. Biggest sunflower head
Measure the diameter of the seed head. The flower petals should not be included.
2. Tallest sunflower plant
Measured from the base of the stem (not including the roots) to the top of the head. The head can be extended to measure the full height of the plant.
How to Enter
Entries are open from now until the 30th September 2020. Please enter your details using this online form. Competition open to East Sheen allotment plot holders only.
Please submit one entry for each individual sunflower you wish to enter in the competition. For instance, if you have two sunflowers you wish to enter (one for height and another biggest sunflower head), please submit the form twice. It is possible to enter the same sunflower in both categories.
Please self-measure your sunflowers in millimetres (mm).
Once a submission is received, all measurements will be verified by a volunteer judge to confirm measurements.

Please do send us any photos you have of your sunflowers as we would like to share these in the next newsletter and on the website (not a requirement to enter the competition).
Photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and good luck!
